Susan Kantor grew up in Northbrook, Illinois and attended the University of Iowa where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Communications. After college, she worked for six years as a Sales Account Executive for the Chicago Sun Times, but she ultimately discovered an entrepreneurial streak that prompted her to pursue self-employment options.
She began her direct sales career in 1992 with The Longaberger Company, a highly respected organization specializing in handcrafted baskets and other home and lifestyle products. Over a 17 year career, Susan gained notoriety as one of the most successful National Sales Leaders in the company’s history. Jim Klein, former Longaberger President said “Susan is a natural leader who is not only well skilled in all dimensions of sales management, but also one of the best motivational speakers that I have seen. She is an outstanding sales leader, who leads by example, and truly knows how to inspire her team.”
In 2010 Susan transitioned to a Sales Vice President role with Jewels by Park Lane where she recruited and trained new Fashion Directors, facilitated training meetings, and motivated the sales force.
A strong proponent of physical fitness (Susan is a Second Degree Black Belt in martial arts), in 2014 Susan sensed a growing calling to help other men and women to obtain peak health, so she became certified as a Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). She started her fitness business, “Fit Sexy Forever,” and now works personally with a growing base of highly motivated and goal oriented clients.
Also, in 2014 Susan aligned with Isagenix/VIP Team and now leads a North American organization of over 1,200 members. Susan continues to be excited for and inspired by the physical and financial results her team members have experienced. Susan loves to share the Isagenix story and believes deeply in the company mission statement: “Our vision is to impact world health and free people from physical and financial pain, and in the process create the largest health and wellness company in the world.”
